From Freelance to Full-Time

Orlando, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Out of 53 million Americans, 34 percent of the workforce is freelancing. That’s more than the population of 25 states! Freelancers include anyone from contract workers to temps. Hiring may be on the increase, but it’s still an employer’s market so we have some tips on how to turn your freelance gig into a fulltime opportunity.

Freelancing may not be for everyone, but it can get your foot in the door of your dream job, giving you the chance to build your resume and a relationship with a company.

First off, always meet and beat your deadlines. Every week ask if there is anything you can help with. Ask your managers for advice on how to improve. Go to any and all company meetings you are invited to, even if it’s unpaid. Always exude a positive attitude; even if you don’t get the job, they could end up as a reference. Also remind your supervisors of your value by contributing to company goals, and make connections and friends within the company.

Great workers, contract or part-time, could persuade a company to free up budgets to allow for full-time positions. Treat the freelance gig as a probationary period and work as if the job were permanent. According to the freelance union, freelancing adds 715 billion dollars to the economy through their work.
